Busch Gardens’ always popular Christmas Town holiday extravaganza is back on Black Friday, November 27, with an all new holiday-themed ice show. The stage at the park’s Royal Palace Theatre has been transformed into a dazzling ice arena that will star Olympic figure skater Elvis Stojko. This new ice show is destined to become a family favorite.
Entitled ‘Twas That Night, the new ice skating show is a live performance created by the same team behind London Rocks and the 2014 Scrooge No More! production. The storyline of ‘Twas That Night is based on Clement Moore’s 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”
Figure skating fans will remember Canadian figure skater Elvis Stojko from the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Elvis Stojko holds a number of medals. He is a three-time World Champion, two-time Olympic silver medalist and a seven-time Canadian champion.
Along with ‘Twas That Night, returning Christmas musical shows include:
- Deck the Halls – Das Festhaus in the Oktoberfest village
- Gloria! – Abbey Stone Theater in Ireland
- Miracles – San Marco Theater in Italy
- Scrooge No More! – Globe Theatre in England
- O’ Tannenbaum – light and music show at the 50-foot Christmas tree in front of Das Festhaus
